Bedroom Makeover

Remember these? I made them months ago, and finally put them to good use! I've had them sitting around for the past few months wondering if I would ever use them. On Monday, I went to Ikea with my Mom and sister Ayrika. Over spring break they were re-doing Ayrika's room. So we were on a hunt for the perfect comforter, and accessories. Luckily we found everything she wanted and even more. While there, I found the a duvet for our bed that matched the colors that I had picked.

Today Bob dropped me off at JoAnns and I found some fabric to match for curtains. I spent the last 4 hours sewing the curtains and 2 pillow cases. (They are orange, but a little too bright for my taste.) A big THANKS to my Mom for helping me. The room is still pretty bare, but it's coming together. We are getting a headboard from my parents and then I'll figure out what to do next. *Sorry for the quality of photos, I had to use my laptop because I can't find my cord.

Love the curtain fabric! It's adorable! You should consider doing some fun accent pillows for your bed! You can do lots of funky fabrics and colors since your bed spread is a nuetral color! xoxo

Thanks for all the comments on my blog lately. I love it. I love your crafty-ness. I have not been a bit crafty lately. Since we will both have some free time this summer we should do something amazing!!!
